[Nettime-nl] nettime: American Action Market


Though there was an outcry over the Pentagon's terrorism futures market, a
similar online exchange is in the works to predict what the U.S. government
is up to.
The American Action Market will offer various Washington "futures" that can
be bet upon and traded. Examples include:

The AAM market is the brainchild of a half-dozen academics from various
colleges, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale
University, New York University and the University of Montreal. Most,
however, are keeping their identities quiet until they get an institutional
go-ahead.

The market was organized on Nettime, a politics and culture mailing list.
